Remember when you were a kid and you couldn’t wait to grow up?
You used to look at the adults around you and think, “Man. These people have it made.” They could do whatever they wanted, whenever they wanted. They had no one to report to, no time they had to be home and in bed, and no homework. That last part was the kicker.
And then you grew up and realized this whole adulting thing was one giant ruse. You felt cheated. Lied to. Betrayed.
Sure, the adults in your life would tell you not to wish your life away when you were young. They would say cryptic things like, “Being an adult isn’t all it’s cracked up to be” and “I would give anything to be able to stay up past 8 PM right now.”
But you didn’t listen. Because what exactly were they trying to say?
They were trying to say being an adult isn’t all it’s cracked up to be and it means you’re so tired you can barely stay up past 8 PM. DUH. You should have opened your ears. THEY TOLD YOU PLAIN AS COULD BE. But you didn’t want to hear it.
Now you find yourself buried in bills, more exhausted than you ever thought was humanly possible, and desperately wishing your workplace would institute a nap hour. You know, like in kindergarten. If only you had appreciated those mandated hours of glorious respite as a child. And as for the not having to report to anyone or having to go to bed or having homework? HAHAHAHAHAAGOHADFHAHG.
Being a grown-up isn’t all bad, though. At least you get to enjoy things like these hilarious memes about the side effects of adulting, for example.
Check them out, have a laugh, and try not to pass out from the exertion. And then be sure to click on the images to follow these funny people on social media for more hilarity. They’re bound to cheer you up.
After all, might as well set aside some time to laugh between sobs, right?
